Felicity – Adopted June 2021

About Me

Meet Felicity
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 9 Years

Estimated Weight: 28 Pounds

UPDATE – 5 MAY 2021: Check out this recent video of Felicity as she asks for dinner! Dinner Time! This pretty girl is feeling so much better and loves to share her beautiful beagle bay with her foster family!

UPDATE – 27 APRIL 2021:  This lady is a fighter! After a minor setback with her recovery, Felicity is definitely ready to move on. While her young-to-mature years have been a bit rough on her, she is very much looking forward to a smoother transition into her senior years. She is fully housetrained and has a sweet and gentle personality. Her mischievous years are definitely behind her, as she does not get up on furniture, counters, or tables. She enjoys lazing around most of the time, but she also gets out for some fresh air on short walks a few times a day. Like any beagle, meal and snack times are her favorite and usually get her moving pretty well.

Joint issues come with age, so she often moves carefully to protect herself. Stairs are a struggle, so she takes each one very slowly. She is currently on an anti-inflammatory to minimize her discomfort and she will likely require long term care for this issue. Her current medication works well and supplements may also be recommended. Felicity’s stiff joints (mainly on her upper back/shoulder) keep her from enjoying too close cuddles, but she seeks out a good lower back scratch and really loves to have that spot behind her ears rubbed.

If you are looking for a low-key, quiet, calm and oh so adorable and grateful beagle, Felicity is for you! Her ideal home would be single-dog with older children. She does get along with other dogs and doesn’t mind kids, but is not interested in playful behavior and may bark as a defensive measure and in warning if someone is getting too frisky for her comfort zone. The dog park may be too much for her, but some socializing with slower seniors would be ok.

UPDATE – 1 MARCH 2021: Felicity has good news to share! Her biopsy results show the mass that was removed is benign and they were able to remove it all! She continues to be on the mend and enjoying foster-life. A few more weeks of taking it easy for her! We are so happy this girl is getting a second chance at life!

UPDATE – 21 FEBRUARY 2021 (from foster family): Felicity has come to us following her recent medical treatments – removing a few bad teeth and a growth. She is recovering quickly and already has some pep back in her step. This girl looks a little older than her 8 years, and her life has probably been a little rough until now. But after 3 days of rest, she is starting to walk around and explore her new surroundings a bit. She, of course, went straight for the garbage can for a sniff, so we know she’s a beagle and that her nose is just fine! She doesn’t seem used to being doted on, but she certainly isn’t minding it! She enjoys a gentle cuddle and short walks around the yard. She has only had one accident since she has been here and goes to the bathroom every time she goes outside. More to come as Felicity regains her strength and begins to show us who she is.

UPDATE – 11 FEBRUARY 2021: Felicity is working through a few medical issues, but she should be available soon. In the meantime, she is enjoying some TLC in one of our foster homes.

NEW – 9 NOVEMBER 2020: Felicity is a 7-8-year-old female beagle. She’s friendly and good with other dogs. She was a stray at the Louisa County Animal shelter in Virgnia, so her history is unknown. She will be available soon.

Questions?

Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
